For many obese patients, the goal of losing weight has been a challenge and a struggle for a significant amount of time. More importantly, they endure substantial physical limitations, fatigue, and pain which preventing them from performing vigorous aerobic exercises to lose weight. Thankfully, weight loss surgery such as gastric sleeve Mexico and gastric bypass has proven to be both safe and long-lasting.
Furthermore, people with overweight and obesity are very often unable to achieve success through diet programs as their body craves large amounts of calories because of excessive body weight. Therefore, what is the secret behind the success of weight loss surgery? And how can you lose a dramatic amount of weight and never gain it back? Let us find out.
The secret behind weight loss surgery
According to a well-known dietitian, the coordinator of clinical programs at the Massachusetts General Hospital Weight Center for the past 20 years, a person must consider bariatric surgery when other therapies for obesity fail. Dealing with obesity can be very emotionally draining, and to top it off it often leads to diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, arthritis, and so on. That is clear evidence that an obese patient must really start considering bariatric surgery in Mexico.
Bariatric surgeries result in quick weight loss for mainly two reasons. First, they reduce the amount of food a person can hold in the stomach. Second, they cause changes in hormones produced in the intestines that help reduce hunger, increase fullness, and regulate blood sugar.
Furthermore, the reason why weight loss surgery in Mexico is so effective in producing long-lasting or long-term results is that they dramatically affect the physiological regulation of body weight, interfering with signals that defend against starvation and weight loss. Ultimately, this fact changes a person’s set point or the level at which weight tends to stabilize.
Most successful weight-loss surgeries
Gastric sleeve Mexico or Sleeve Gastrectomy is a bariatric procedure performed by removing approximately 70 -80% of the patient’s stomach. What remains is a small tube of the stomach in the shape of a banana or sleeve.
How is gastric sleeve Mexico performed? It uses several mechanisms. For example, the new stomach pouch holds a much smaller amount of food than the normal stomach and thus significantly reduces the amount of food and calories that a patient can consume. The other mechanism also provides remarkable benefits to lose weight. It has to do with the effect this type of surgery has on gut hormones that impact several factors, including hunger, satiety, and keeping blood sugar on optimal levels.
The other successful surgical operation is gastric bypass Mexico where bariatric surgeons follow two essential procedures. First, they create a small stomach pouch of approximately one ounce (30 ml) in volume by sectioning the top and bottom parts of the stomach. Following this step, the first part of the small intestine is divided, connecting the bottom end of it to the newly formed small stomach. Finally, the operation is completed by connecting the top part of the divided small intestine to the small intestine further down. Thus, the acids and digestive enzymes created at the bypassed stomach and first portion of the small intestine will mix with the food to finish the digestive process.
How does gastric bypass help a person lose weight quickly? Just like in the gastric sleeve and other types of bariatric surgery, the new considerably small stomach forces a person to eat significantly smaller meals, which in turn, equals less intake of calories. Furthermore, there is for sure to some degree less absorption of calories and nutrients since there is less digestion of food inside the smaller stomach, and a significant portion of the small intestine no longer has food going through it, so it does not need to absorb calories as well as nutrients.
Above all, in both gastric sleeve Mexico and gastric bypass, the changes in the food stream and digestion process produce changes in gut hormones that are responsible for feelings of satiety and hunger.
Different studies have shown that gastric sleeve Mexico and gastric bypass are very effective not only for a fast weight loss but also in the improvement or remission of conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, sleep apnea, and related illnesses.
How to avoid gaining back the weight
Here is another secret in one word: acceptance. Many successful stories of patients who have undergone some form of weight loss surgery have that common denominator. They have accepted not only their new body but also their new lifestyle. Since for years, you might have lived with excess body weight, you find it strange and challenging to accept the new you. But rest assured that you are still the same person with the same qualities and personality. You have only changed the outward appearance, but the inside remains intact.
Furthermore, after weight loss surgery, it is essential to acknowledge that lifestyle changes are vital. That includes avoiding many food temptations that surround you, such as fast food and sweets that use to bring you comfort and satisfaction.
Bariatric surgery is not going to change your environment. Granted, combining new habits with surgery will produce the best possible long—term results. For instance, some of those new habits include not only avoiding refined and processed foods but also eating more whole foods and increasing physical activity.
Moreover, because there is a significant reduction of nutrient absorption, bariatric surgeons and/or nutritionists will advise taking during a very long-time supplements of vitamins and minerals such as iron, calcium, folate, vitamins B12 and B1 and vitamin D.
